This was our second visit to City Hall Cafe. It was highly recommended by our tarpon guide who is a long time resident of the area. We host a group of guides here each year and we consider it one of the best values in the area. The food is Italian, with an Florida Keys slant. The service is great... More

We love the middle Keys but had never stopped here before. Best Reuben ever because they roast their own meats. Everything is homemade. Original key lime pie recipe. Friendly. If the tourists only knew...

Food is always fresh as CHC does a lot of business. Filled with locals everyday at lunch. Varied menu with daily specials. Indoor and outdoor seating. Fast, friendly, clean.

Food was really good and portions, especially the kids, were generous. Took awhile to get the food, which was ok, but one of our dishes came about 5 min after the rest.

For a small quaint restaurant very nice atmosphere. Quick service. Great microbrew selection. Had wings for an appetizer and chef special fish for dinner. It was cooked perfectly. Service with a smile. Don't miss this gem of a restaurant on your visit to Islamorada!

A small local place with very good lunches and dinners (we didn't do breakfast). Good service and food as good as the more expensive places! If you are hungry .... go here= BIG portions.

Saying our meal was really good is an understatement - it was fantastic! They cooked our fish three different ways & all were delicious. Veggies & potatoes were done perfectly, staff were friendly & efficient and schmoozing with the owner was delightful. Add in a great wine & beer selection and it was perfect. We will definitely be back and... More
